Hey kids, sorry this thread is going up a bit late. Dinner with the folks ran long, but I got in the door in time for kickoff. This is your live match thread for the preseason match between Tottenham Hotspur and the New York Red Bulls. Here are your lineups.
Tottenham Hotspur Lineup (4-2-3-1): Gomes; Asosu-Ekotto, Vertonghen, Dawson, Walker; Huddlestone, Livermore; Bentley, Sigurdsson, Lennon; Bale
New York Red Bulls (4-4-1-1): Gaudette; Conde, Holgersson, Miller, Tainio; Lade, McCarty, Cahill, Le Toux; Cahill; Cooper
Yes, that's Gareth Bale at center forward. That's also Tom Huddlestone, Kyle Walker and Jan Vertonghen in the starting XI, which is really awesome. It's also cool to see Gomes back in the lineup. I'm not sure he has a role in the team, but it's great to see previously injured players get healthy. Kickoff is at 7:05 p.m. ET from Red Bull Arena. You can catch the game on ESPN2 in the USA and ESPN in the UK. It's also streaming online on ESPN3 in the USA and Spurs TV Online in the UK, with a subscription.
